Ethiopia says it will not cave to ’aggression’ in dam dispute

Ethiopia has said that threats of any kind towards resolving a dispute with its neighbors over a hydropower dam were ’clear violations of international law’. PM Abiy Ahmed’s office did not name any person or country. But his comment came hours after US President Trump held a phone call with the Sudanese PM calling for an amicable solution or, Trump said, Egypt might ’blow up’ the dam.

Taking water from downstream neighbors is (and has often been) a basis for war. Having you water source dry up as your neighbors have water running in their gutters can piss you off. (Coming from a former Northern Californian who lived next to an empty reservoir while SoCal lawns were green).

The Nile is Egypt's source for nearly all of its water needs. To impede that flow of water without even talking to Egypt was irresponsible. Sudan can play all the games it wants but to think Egypt won't destroy that dam is the mindset of the insane.

Its size is incredible though there are already multiple dams along the river already. As long as the African Union maintains moderation in filling the catchment and maintain flow during droughts there really should not be an issue otherwise the other dams already established would be put into question.
